Fraternity

Fraternity is the third principle of Order. In 19th century America, life insurance was beyond the financial reach of many poor Catholics, and social services did not exist. Through the Knights of Columbus men were able to band together as brothers to help one another in times of distress, sickness and death.

We are strong

Don’t just take our word for it.

Standard & Poor’s has given us their highest rating (AAA, Extremely Strong) for 18 consecutive years.

A.M. Best has bestowed on us their highest rating (A++, Superior) for 35 consecutive years.

The Insurance Marketplace Standards Association (IMSA) has given us their certification for our ethical business and marketing practices.

Only three insurance companies in the United States can claim these three accolades. In Canada, we stand alone with these endorsements.

Remember, in 2009, the Knights of Columbus gave more than $150 million to Catholic and other charitable causes. In these uncertain times, find comfort in an organization that leads the way in doing good for others while doing good for our own.

We are secure

Since 1882, we have been committed to protecting the financial futures of our Knights and their families. We do this by paying claims and dividends to our insured members. In 2009, we paid well over $431 million in death claims and other benefits, and more than $309 million in dividends to our policyholders. Even more impressive is the fact that from 2000 to 2009 the Knights of Columbus paid $3.191 billion in dividends to insured members.

We are stable

Prudent leadership and management has led to the rapid growth of our assets, providing an adequate foundation for our member’s protection, and securing our obligations to our insured and their beneficiaries. Also, because we are a fraternal benefit society, we have no stockholders. Our owners are our members and we return our good fortune in the form of dividends to our policyholders.

Field Agent:

Every council is assigned a certified insurance agent, who is a Knight, represents the Supreme Council, and whose job it is to provide our top-rated products to our members and their families. We are fortunate to have Jerry Hayes assigned to Council 13307. Jerry is committed to helping members and their families prepare for their financial stability in the future.
